  1. does anyone know if we get a breakout in volatility like that, historically how long will it last before it tapers off????

    1mth?? 3mths???
  2. I hope never, it's a day traders dream to have these moves!
  3. IMO after election.
  4. Last year has seen volatility on roughly a 4-month cycle, from spiking to tapering right off. September would have been the start of another cycle anyway, but current events pretty much throw the rulebook out the window.
